Club Support Package (9 June 2020)

The SLSNT Board is very aware of the impact COVID-19 has had on our surf clubs and our members, and in response has endorsed a one-off COVID - 19 Club Support Package. The package aims to help our clubs and members return to normal as quickly as possible so they can focus on providing a quality lifesaving service to the community. 

The Support Package covers a number of areas of our organisation and is valid from 1 June to 31 December 2020. 

Lifesaving

SLSNT will restock up to three (3) SLS first aid kits per club at our cost. Clubs are asked to provide their first aid kits to SLSNT and we will arrange for them to be restocked to the required levels at our cost. If clubs have out of date defibrillator pads SLSNT will also replace these - clubs will need to provide the out of date pads so we can be sure to get the right replacement part.

The cost for replacement defibrillator batteries or servicing of first aid equipment (defibrillator/regulator) will not be covered but can be discussed on an individual basis.

For more information, or to arrange restocking please contact Ella Tilling (ella@lifesavingnt.com.au).

Education

All core lifesaving qualifications (of members active in 2019) will be extended until 31 December 2020 provided the appropriate online training is completed. Read more...

A power craft course will be run from 27 June - 18 July. This free course is open to all members who meet the pre-requisites. Enrol now...

For all active, financial members, SLSNT are offering a 50% discount to the retail cost of our accredited First Aid courses (retail $160 – SLS members $80).
Dates for our Public First Aid courses are available here...

For more information on Education, please contact Sam Edwards (sam.edwards@lifesavingnt.com.au

Surf Sports

To support members to complete their coaching or official accreditation's, and boost coach and official numbers in the NT, SLSNT will cover the costs of the following online training:

  • Core official, free to active members
  • Technical official, free to active members
  • Foundation coach, free to active members
  • Development coach, 50% covered for active members (member needs to pay $45)

The practical assessment will need to be completed at a later date and SLSNT will work with members to plan a suitable date.

SLSNT is working out how we change the payment method in the SLS Members Portal. So, can any interested members contact Ella Tilling (ella@lifesavingnt.com.au). Ella will be able to manually allocate the Award to the member and make sure payment is made.

Club Support

SLSNT will provide each surf club a one-off cash injection to help offset the loss of income realised as a result of COVID-19.  Clubs will not be asked to provide an acquittal for these funds, the club is welcome to spend the funds on what they believe will benefit the club and their members.
